Trucking Is a Dangerous Job

These types of trucking injuries can occur in a number of ways. Whether you’re driving locally or long-haul, you are at risk! Learn more about some of the most common causes of trucking injury:

The road is a dangerous place, even more so if you’re behind the wheel of a commercial truck. Truckers are responsible for moving thousands of pounds of freight across hundreds of miles while navigating traffic and roadways, often in unfamiliar places. Their trucks have massive blind spots and turning can be difficult. In certain conditions, stopping a commercial truck can be a real challenge. Other drivers may become nervous driving around trucks or have difficulty seeing around them. Trucking accidents and turnovers are common. Even still, out of over 500,000 highway accidents involving commercial tractor trailers that happen every year, only 16% are the truck driver’s fault.

Combine the dangers of the road with the physical demands of trucking and you have a very high-risk profession. Driving a truck is a physical job in every sense. From shifting gears and lifting freight to maintaining your rig and visiting busy work sites or delivery locations, there are many opportunities for a trucker to be injured on the job. Truckers may spend hours sitting “cozy” in the cab, but even that can be the cause behind some of the most common trucking injuries. Vibration, repetitive motion, and extended periods of sitting can all lead to injuries and other serious health issues over time.

We’ll Pursue the Maximum Compensation for Your Trucking Injuries

When truckers suffer injuries, they often lose out on wages until they recover. Workers’ compensation or other insurance payments for lost wages and medical expenses may be delayed during an investigation or while insurers negotiate liability. Don’t leave your livelihood in their hands! You should speak with an experienced trucker workers’ compensation and personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

Call, email, or contact Hurt Trucker Attorneys online any time for more information on how we can help you pursue injury claims and receive compensation. If we represent you, we will aggressively pursue the maximum compensation available for your injuries, and we will not receive a fee until you receive the compensation you deserve.
